Cholesterol high, LDL high, HDL high, ALT high, AST high could the cause be my TSH being high from Hashimoto's?
Definitely: Hypothyroidism will cause all of these metabolic problems. It commonly causes HyperCholesterolemia, and will cause your liver enzymes to elevate because of fat accumulating in the liver cells, called NASH (Non-Alcoholic SteatoHepatitis). NASH rarely actually leads to hepatic problems/failure- only has that potential if the metabolic impairment isn't fixed. The high LDL Cholesterol can hurt badly! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Back to basics: Thanks for your data! numbers all look pretty good. Tg is only mildly elevated and would respond best to low calorie diet with focus on reducing high glycemic index foods and fructose. Tg may come down, but I am not sure there is great benefit to that. Real focus of treatment is LDL but that is great. Eat plenty of fish. Regular aerobic exercise. Maintain healthy weight. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My non-hdl cholesterol is considered too low. Hdl-c is 77, ldl-c is 75 (vldl 13/ldl 62), total c is 152. Could this contribute to sarcopenia?
Lipid Abnormalities: Bad is not a common word we use in medicine. This scenario is a very common type of cholesterol problem. The biggest issues with these numbers are that your lifestyle numbers--the numbers you can change--are all out of whack and putting you in danger. Eating right, exercising correctly and limiting your sugars will lower the triglycerides and raise the hdl. This is vital for you at your age. ...Read more
Potential problem? Very low alkaline phosphatase, slightly low globulin, and low LDL cholesterol. All other tests normal. Healthy 26 y/o male.
Looks fine: Lab reference ranges are set to include most, but not all, healthy couch potatoes. Don't fret over numbers like these when you feel fine. ...Read more
Yes and No: Vldl (very low density cholesterol) is made in the liver, and contains both triglycerides (tg's) and cholesterol ( more tg's than cholesterol). Ldl is made in the blood stream from vldl, and contains more cholesterol, less tg's . Both have a protein called apob on the surface, but because LDL lasts longer , there is more LDL available. Both can cause plaque in arteries if levels are too high. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Don't Know: High hdl-c ( HDL cholesterol ) levels are associated with lower risk of heart disease for populations of patients. For individuals, however we cannot say this. In fact, high HDL can be cause by many things, one of which is increased cholesterol absorption, and may not protect against elevated levels of LDL cholesterol or apo b or LDL particle levels . Hdl can be high but "dysfunctional". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Crp and cholesterol related?
Cholesterol is a fat: which allows animal cell membranes to be flexible & humans to move; has little to do with arterial disease though promoted by NIH.gov for 4 decades for less $. Typical total cholesterol before people 1st obvious heart attack 170 mg/dL. LDL-C is not measured from your blood, only estimated: LDL-C = TC - HDL-C - 1/5th triglycerides. Get NMR lipoprotein test, get LDL particles <400 to max 700 nmol/L ...Read more
More info please: Depends on how high your LDL is. Also depends on your risk factors and your diet. LDL can be lowered by increasing your omega fatty acid, by increasing your exercise and possibly by decreasing your carbohydrate intake. If you have low risk factors then there wouldn't be much cause for concern. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi! my total cholesterol is slightly high (202mg/l) but with high hdl (82 mg/l) low ldl(106mg/l) &low triglycerides (59mg/l) are the results bad?
My cholesterol is low at 99. My LDL and HDL are also both low. HDL 34.6. LDL 46. Triglycerides 86. Should I be concerned?
No. Low LDL is good.: Try raising HDL. Look for foods with monounsaturated fats (olive oil, etc.). Read up on such foods on nutrition websites. Avoiding sugars and simple starches should help raise HDL (good cholesterol). Fruits have a lot of sugar, and most breads are simple starches. Protein such as chicken breast, pork loin (whiter meat), and tofu can be eaten instead of carbs. Exercising will also raise the HDL. ...Read more

HDL 56, LDL 93, Triglycerides 119. Is the triglyceride level a bit on the high side? seems relatively high given my HDL and LDL levels.
Lipid profile: The basic lipid profile (total cholesterol, HDL, triglycerides, and calculated LDL) is a useful test for assessing the risk of atherosclerosis and heart disease. However it is only part of a complete evaluation, and must be interpreted in context of many other factors such as family history, blood pressure, diet, medical conditions, etc. Preventive consultation requires looking at all these. ...Read more
How do I raise my very low HDL while lowering my slightly high ldl? 38 yo m, 37 hdl, 112 ldl. Trigly, bp, blood sugar, BMI all good.
Unusual over 100: Hdl cholesterol (hdl-c) levels over 100 are vary uncommon. In general, high hdl-c may be the result of genetics (hyperalphalipoproteinemia), exercise, increased alcohol intake, or medications (niacin, fibrates). Rare causes include obstruction in the biliary tract, very high blood levels of dilantin, and organophosphate toxicity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
